La Doña

Scoot Inn

La Doña, born Cecilia Cassandra Pe a-Govea in San Francisco, California, is a solo reggaeton singer, songwriter and multiinstrumentalist.
The Chicana artist began her career at age 7 playing trumpet, and later strings and percussion in her family’s
conjunto. She also played in a youth salsa band and a Balkan fusion band before synthesizing her unique upbringing in her
original compositions. La Doña  a combines her deep roots in Latin folk traditions like corridos and rumba with the propulsive
modern sounds of reggaeton, cumbia, and hip hop.
La Doña  a coined the term “Femmeton” to describe her auto-referential songs about love, sex, gentrification and the radical joys
of being a queer brown woman in the Bay Area. An activist and educator, she holds her community close- her father, childhood
friends, and partner layer live instrumentation, intimate harmonies and driving percussion over a thick reggaeton beat.
Influenced by local muralismo and hyphy sensibilities just as much as global diasporas and climate catastrophes, La Doña
catalogue is eclectic, fresh, and urgent.
